'Poldark' star Aidan Turner top choice for British women's fantasies of men to have in bed
Aidan Turner's shirtless scene while portraying his character Captain Ross Poldark in 'Poldark' has become every British women's fantasy. A research that was conducted found that 65% of the women think of another man instead of their partner in bed.
One of the top choices for them was Turner thanks to his shirtless scene in his BBC1 drama. Other men who made it on the list, according to Mirror, were Daniel Craig, Brad Pitt and David Beckham.
Meanwhile, David Gandy and Justin Bieber also made it to the list. However, women are not the only ones who think about someone else while in bed. The survey also found that 56% of men think about another woman while in bed.
Rihanna, Katy Perry and Rita Ora were the ones who took the top spot. Meanwhile, actresses Michelle Keegan and Kate Beckinsale also made it to the list. Some also had Madonna on their list.
The survey also found out that both men and women admitted having thoughts about work colleagues, porn stars and the partners of their friends. Looking at the list, it seems like there are quite a few celebrities who have managed to become eye-candy for people.
While Turner has managed to make it on the top, he had previously admitted that he was convinced people would not like his character.
One of the biggest concerns for his role in 'Poldark' was that he was an Irish man trying to play the role of a British man. He was worried that people would not appreciate his character. "British actor, British character – would people buy it? Do people want an Irish guy doing that?" he said, according to a Cheatsheet report.
He also thought that he was taking a big role by accepting this character because he thought he was too young to take on the role. "It did feel like a risk at the time," he said.
"We weren't sure if the show would have an audience, whether people would remember or care about the books or anything, and it just felt big to be in the center leading this show."
When Turner got this role, he did not have many prized acting performances in his bag. Hence, the risk of people accepting him in a huge character role made him wonder if he was making the right decision.
However, all these thoughts vanished when it was found that the Season premiere of the show managed to gather 4.7 million viewers in the UK.
While Turner has managed to make a place for himself in the acting industry and even the hearts of the people thanks to his character, he admitted he wanted to break free from drama and spread his wings to other genres to see what is in store for him.
While he has a lot of options in front of him, one thing that Turner seems to be sure is that he does not want to enter the Marvel Universe because he believes there is a lot of makeup that's involved. Nonetheless, his 'Poldark' character has managed to make him a big star and made people realize his potential as an actor.
